My Monday Musings - Time to Write
I went back and forth today with what to muse about and yet here I am at 8 at night trying to get a post done. I never had enough time to really think about what I was going to write about because it seems anytime I do jump online I get sucked into the 5 things I needed to look up, catching up with Twitter and Facebook or doing something mindless that I never intended to do.
Yesterday I posted about writing and how I wanted to do it more and do it better. I think in order to do that I need to set time aside to do the writing. Even if it's just an outline or a paragraph about nothing. In the end it's something, right?
I have to admit, when I worked I felt like I had all the time in the world. Yes, even though I was in an office 8 hours a day. I was on a computer all day and it was so easy to jot down ideas or actually hash out a short story. And yet I was always one of the most productive employees in the office. I was the go-to girl. I knew how to organize my work and my time.
But now with a house, a husband and a child...I feel like I am always fighting to get a few minutes of me (i.e., internet) time without someone wanting or needing something. It is quite a conundrum but one I need to figure out and soon.
How do you organize your day and your time? Do some days feel like a battle for the time you covet? Share your secrets, please!
